Like a dose of salts, World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Deontay ” Bronze Bomber” Wilder, and his trainer Jay Deas, swept through an open media workout in Alabama for the rematch against Cuban Luis “King Kong” Ortiz, vowing that this time around… it`ll be a quicker stoppage.
The second helping of the main course, will be broadcast on FOX Sports, on Saturday, November 23 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Wilder showed his skills and then sat down to talk about taking on Ortiz, in a quick fire questions and answers session at the New Era Boxing and Fitness Center in Northport, Alabama.
Deas explained that they don’t expect a rematch for February with Tyson Fury. Nevertheless literally all the focus is currently beaming on an even more determined strong “Kong” than Wilder stopped in ten rounds in March 2018.
“It took Deontay and Luis some rounds to get underway last time, but I don’t think that’s the case in this fight. These fighters know each other, have been there together and have seen what the other one has. Each knows exactly what the other brings to the table. I think it will be very interesting from the opening bell, ” predicted Deas.
“I think we are going to see the best Luis Ortiz. He knows that this could be his last chance for the world title and that will bring out the very most that he has to offer. He`ll also make some corrections of what he did in the first fight. We are preparing for the best Ortiz and Ortiz will be better prepared for the very best Deontay Wilder.
“When Deontay comes out of this with a victory, we`ll then consider and think about other fights. But for the time being, we must be 100% focused on defeating Luis Ortiz.”
